On Tuesday, February 20, and Wednesday, February 21, at 7:30 p.m. Berklee Valencia presents Styx at the Aula Magistral of Les Arts.
Styx, the closing event of the 2023/24 season of Berklee a Les Arts, will draw inspiration from Christoph Willibald Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice.
Styx is a river. It has no end. It flows through time, always different, always the same. There is no looking back. As Heraclito stated in his Panta Rhei, everything flows and has already changed. In this river, you must let go of what dies and hold on to trust that something new will take its place.
Styx is also a response to Gluck’s opera Orfeo ed Euridice. Orfeo bewitched the underworld with his music, and Styx captured its echoes in its stream. This Berklee at Les Arts show is a musical journey where love doesn’t get a second chance. It unveils a white canvas that represents the collective and timeless voice of the Greek chorus. Different iterations of Orfeo, Euridice and Amore ebb and flow: all of the voices, each of the stories. Styx is a homage to surrendering to grief, and planting the seed of hope.
Berklee Valencia students will take you on a journey through these waters at Palau de Les Arts.
Tickets are required to enter the venue. They are already available at Les Arts website for 5 euros.
Berklee a les Arts is a collaboration between Palau de les Arts and Berklee College of Music that offers the audience new meeting points for music and other artistic disciplines related to the pieces performed at Les Arts.
